    Hi

    If I was to set up my Boyu TL 550 will it make a nice frag tank with standard lighting? (or with the extra bulb in the hood mod)

    What will I be able to frag and grow out in there ?

    Thanks
    Brandon

    Thanks

    The lights will be 2x24 watts but with the upgrade it will be 48 watts + a 10000k 24 watt... which would make it 72 watts

    the depth of the tank is 57 cm but the stuff needing more light will be place higher on egg crate

    so I take it i can keep :

    Leathers
    Kenya Trees
    Xenia
    Blue Xenia
    GSP
    Zoas
    Mushrooms
    Rics ??
    Brains??

    Other LPS corals ??
    I doubt SPS..

    Thanks

    thanks jacques ... I suppose there is only one way to know if corals would work and its to try them out in there otherwise move them out again ..

    I know that Zoas are in demand (different colors) and Rics but what about Blue Xenia I have quite a bit of it and was wondering before I frag and start a thread to sell them are there any reefers interested in some before I frag them unnecessarily? I would of course let them grow out and establish first

    Thanks
    Brandon

    Thanks alot

    The lighting in the Boyu will be enought, just check if the lighting tubes are the 18w or the 36w, be carefull for the extra globe, as it WILL increase the temp in the water, temp controll in the Boyu nano's is a headache unless u have a Chiller.
